Katsucon Lolita Giveaways and Opinions on Hair Tints/Chalks? 
4th-Feb-2013 03:34 pm
Our Gabal Spice Shopping Service will be holding an event at Katsucon for all the lolitas attending.

KATSUCON BUSINESS CARD RAFFLE

We will be handing out business cards to all the lolitas we see at Katsucon.
Each card has a special written number on the back.

We will be announcing 4 winners on February 17th at 12PM our facebook page. Winners will need to send us a picture of the back of their business cards as verification. Each card is different, so there won't be problems of duplicated. :)

The winners will receive a free Prima-H Quality Gabalnara wig from what we have in stock. :)

Are there any planned lolita meet-ups for Katsucon this year? If so, please let us know so we can give all lolita's the first chance to win. :)


QUESTIONS / OPINIONS

Are lolitas interested in Hair Chalks/Tints?

Gabalnara recently added these products to their website and as a Shopping Service, we're wondering if the lolita community would be interested in these products?

These wash out simple with warm water and soap. It can be used on both wigs and human hair.
They are just applied to the hair and stay on with normal hair spray or flat ironed on.


Please feel free to let us know you opinions on the matter. ^^

Hair chalk is really just chalk pastels so....even though Venus angelic made a video about it, I don't think it's going to bee a popular method, and if it did, anybody can buy some pastels locally

From reading the description, this one wont stain clothes once applied properly unlike regular chalk/pastels. But i completely understand. :)

Now we know that it may not be worth the investment. :)

As far as the hair chalking goes... Basically, you can use any chalk and it's pretty popular right now. You don't need to order special stuff from somewhere.

Gotcha. ;)

Unless they have a special type that doesn't stain like normal art chalks do, personally, I would be worried that it would stain my clothes, so I wouldn't wear it with lolita. But that's just me.

But the application is just by sealing it with hairspray, right? You can do that with any other chalk as well and as long as you spray on a good enough coating of hairspray, you'll seal it, but it'll make the hair look weird (kind of solid) unless it's in a fixed up do or something where the locks of hair really don't need to move.

Agree with that! Not worth the risk :O

Even if they say they won't stain, I think I'd worry that I wouldn't apply them right and I'd stain my clothes. Also I don't know how this would look with brown hair and lolita. Maybe cute, but I can't imagine it. They do look adorable on people with light hair.

I've seen a few tutorials in which the people had brown hair; it can look good but the colours tend to be a bit less vivid.
4th-Feb-2013 11:24 pm (UTC)
Yeah, I've seen it too. It just seems like would look better with a more casual style than lolita since it's not as vivid with darker hair. I don't know, maybe it's just my preference. Or maybe these chalks work better. I'm not interested enough that I'd buy them to find out, since I already have chalk pastels.

Yes, I'm interested in the chalk method for coloring hair, but I don't think it's really worth it to buy special chalk for it... I already have some at home, so I wouldn't invest in those.

eh, I wanted to chalk my hair for a while, but apparently it's really damaging... so I don't want to risk it, lol. My poor hair has been through enough.

i have one hair chalk from walgreens and it works nicely. my other hair chalk is actually a blush and it works better than the hair chalk. i like chalking my hair, but i wouldnt do it for lolita.

I tested with high quality pigment chalks on both my hair and on a wig.

For my hair, It was terribly messy, doesn't last long at all.
The pigments were so bright and concentrated, that it stained my hands and clothing I had ( I used an old t shirt to try it out with ).

Then I decided to test it on a Heat Resistant wig. I used the chalk, sealed it with heat AND hairspray. It was so messy, I was so glad I did not wear any expensive clothing, I tried washing the wig afterwards and there were still chalk particles in the wig after 5 washes!

Now that wig is done for lol.

I rather just get those Gradient wigs now, the ones popping up that ressemble Ayumi Seto's hair color/wigs.
